The Tygerberg Hospital School continues to fill an academic void in the lives of children who are in hospital for extended periods.
The school, which has been in existence since 1959, consists of a primary school section and a high school section, located on the lower ground floor at Tygerberg Hospital.
The school caters for approximately 45-50 learners daily, ranging from Grade R to Grade 12.
Children who suffer from illnesses such as cancer, heart, lung, kidney, liver and orthopaedic conditions attend classes.
The teachers collect the children from the wards in the morning and accompany them to the school. Children who are unable to leave their wards receive bedside education.
